Attorney General's News Release

November 19, 2010

Attorney General Koster announces guilty plea in child sexual abuse case --Defendant is former Fredericktown Police Captain--

Jefferson City, Mo. -- Attorney General Chris Koster said today that Kenneth D. Tomlinson II has pleaded guilty to all 22 counts he was charged with related to the sexual abuse of minors.

At the time these crimes occurred Tomlinson was the Captain of the Fredericktown Police Department and a Boy Scout leader. The guilty pleas were entered before Judge Ted House in St. Charles County.

"It is tragic and unfathomable that a person in a position of trust and influence, especially trust and influence over minor children, would take personal advantage and would abuse that trust," Koster said. "I send my concern and sympathy to the victims and family members harmed by this act of betrayal."

Tomlinson will be sentenced February 4, 2011.
